[SHAREBLOCK]


The issue of color has been addressed by the establishment of a standard monitor color space for the World Wide Web and the Windows operating system. This is known as sRGB. Traditionally, operating systems have supported the display of colors on a monitor by using RGB. However, as RGB varies between devices, color was not reliably reproduced across different monitors.

Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft and others have developed the sRGB standard monitor color space that is optimized to meet the needs of most users. Very simply, sRGB is calibrated RGB that is optimized for the vast majority of computer monitors, operating systems and browsers. sRGB specifications use a monitor with a gamma of 2.2 and 6,500 degree Kelvin white point. sRGB will allow color to be reproduced and displayed in a single, unified method that provides for viewing consistency from monitor to monitor.

Further, Microsoft has made sRGB the default monitor color space for Windows 98/2000/XP.

The RGB color values printed in the PANTONE® COLOR BRIDGE™ coated are Pantone's official release of RGB values that conform to the sRGB specification. The data provides the best possible representation of PANTONE Colors on a display, given the inherent parameters associated with the monitor and the sRGB standard.
